From the days of JFK to the early days of Clinton, this story of two young women growing up and becoming adults during a tumultuous time in our history.
Coming from totally different backgrounds, Eve and Daniella, meet at school and are soon finding a sense of belonging while also having their eyes opened to the harshness and unfairness of life in the South and beyond. Racism is an ugly thing. And sometimes the more you try and help, the worse things become.
From school to their own children, they take very different approaches to life, with Eve making some choices that may come back to haunt them all.
Great read. A hard read. Will we ever be able to see beyond color and class?
I’m not sure but I’m glad I read this.
